Cricket World Cup 2023: South Africa, led by Temba Bavuma, faces off against the Netherlands at the HPCA stadium in Dharamshala. South Africa aims to secure its place alongside India and New Zealand, each with three wins, atop the World Cup points table, thanks to their strong net run rate.

South Africa’s journey so far has been dominant, defeating Sri Lanka by 102 runs and five-time champions Australia by 134 runs in their first two matches. Their batting and bowling have both been exceptional, with scores exceeding 300 runs and restricting Australia to 177.

On the other hand, the Netherlands lost their first two matches against Pakistan and New Zealand. In their first game, they struggled to chase a target of 286 and were bowled out for 205. In the second match, they were bowled out for 223 while chasing New Zealand’s 322.

Head-to-head, South Africa has the upper hand, winning six out of seven ODI encounters, with one ending in no result. Their most recent meeting in Johannesburg in 2023 saw South Africa win by 146 runs.

The fantasy XI for today’s match includes Quinton de Kock as captain, Bas de Leede, Rassie van der Dussen, Vikramjit Singh, Aiden Markram, Kagiso Rabada as vice-captain, Colin Ackermann, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Lungi Ngidi, and Aryan Dutt.

Regarding the pitch report, the HPCA stadium in Dharamshala is expected to favor high-scoring matches, with support for both pacers and spinners. Teams bowling second may have an advantage, as conditions are likely to assist the bowlers under lights.

There’s a 55% chance of rain and a 33% chance of thunderstorms, according to Accuweather, with temperatures ranging from 10°C to 17°C.

South Africa’s probable XI: Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma (c), Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi.
